“We are still $400,000 from our kettle goal of $1.5 millon,” said Major Evie Diaz, divisional commander of The Salvation Army in Kansas City. “The community has been extremely generous but we are still behind and are hopeful that these final few days before Christmas will make up the difference.”
The Salvation Army’ s Red Kettle Campaign is the organization’s largest fundraiser and helps to fund programs for the needy all year long.
